CHELSEA, MA (WBZ-AM) — It was a scary situation for a mother and baby in Chelsea when a stranger entered their home.
Adriana Rice was putting down her son, 15-month-old Mateo, for a nap Friday at her home in Chelsea when her home security system alerted her that the front door was opened.
When she checked the video, she saw there was a strange man inside her house.
“I put my son in the crib. [I] looked for something to grab to defend myself, but I just couldn’t find anything. Before he came into the room I went out, and there he was standing right there,” Rice said.
She told the man to leave and informed him surveillance cameras were rolling. The man took off. Policed used that video to track down and arrest 29-year-old Edwin Sifredo Castro of Chelsea.
